KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he isn’t planning on making lineup changes to an offensive line that has given up the most sacks in the Southeastern Conference.
The Volunteers yielded six sacks Saturday as they fell 10-9 to Florida for their third consecutive loss. Tennessee has given up 18 sacks through the first five games of the year.
Jones said the current starting linemen are "the five we feel gives us the best opportunity on Saturdays." The starting line includes juniors Kyler Kerbyson, Marcus Jackson and Mack Crowder and freshmen Jashon Robertson and Coleman Thomas.
Tennessee replaced all five of last year’s starting offensive linemen and lost left tackle Jacob Gilliam to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the season opener.
Tennessee (2-3) hosts Chattanooga (3-2) on Saturday.
